Bearing the above in mind, I invite the readers of 'MLM The American Dream Made Nightmare' to watch this latest CNBC video, entitled 'Selling The American Dream,' which is presented by Herb Greenberg.
Although it was clearly explained to Mr. Greenberg by Robert FitzPatrick that 'Herbalife' has an loss-rate of at least 99% amongst its never-ending chain of participants, it is far more accurate to say that:
Other than the insignificant minority of schills at the top of the 'Herbalife' pyramid, the hidden, overall, rolling churn/loss rate for the so-called 'Herbalife MLM Income Opportunity,' has always been 100%!
|Narcissistic 'Herbalife' racketeer, Michael Johnson.|
Perhaps Mr. Greenberg should have asked the following common-sense questions of Michael Johnson:
- Since your organization's instigation, exactly how many people around the world have signed-up with 'Herbalife' and exactly how many of these alleged 'Independent Business Owners' have got back more money than they paid in?
- What quantifiable evidence can you supply which would prove that the so-called 'Herbalife income opportunity' has had any significant and sustainable revenue other than that deriving from a never-ending chain of losing participants?

I have to say that I found David Vladeck's morally, and intellectually, bankrupt contribution to this recent CNBC documentary, to be almost as disturbing as that of Michael Johnson.
I hasten to add that the ongoing, blame-the-victim cultic racket which has generally been referred to as 'MLM,' has precious little connection with business (in the traditional sense of the word). Consequently, it should never have been left to a bunch of ill-informed trade regulators to deal with this latter-day version of an age-old criminogenic phenomenon.
